Brocade switch - Transparent firewall - filtering traffic to VLANs
Preetam last edited by
My goal is to limit IP address access on VLANs on my switch. Basically, I will have a few servers separated into VLANs, and I want to restrict each VLAN to a certain number of IP addresses. I'm not using NAT–all of the IPs are public.
My regular servers are on VLAN 16. I have a server on VLAN 18. My pfSense installation is on a KVM with one interface in VLAN 16 and another on VLAN 18 (as a tagged port).
I'm trying to go through the tutorial(s) but since I'm not a networking pro by any means, I'm a bit confused.
My pfSense installation's WAN IP is 10.10.10.200. The server on VLAN 18 is 10.10.10.201. How would the traffic move through the pfSense port on VLAN 18? Do I need to set the gateway on the server to 10.10.10.200?
Thanks in advance

They look like they are on the same subnet, so, traffic will not route to the firewall. If you want to filter the traffic, I would suggest going with a filtering bridge setup. I think this is described in the book and there are probably some resources in the forums and doc site for pfsense.
